With 6 points in 2 games, Bills in disbelief

Buffalo's offense is at a "loss for words" after another 3-point performance...

On the heels of one of the worst offensive performances in recent memory, which came on the heels of another putrid effort the week before, Bills' WR Lee Evans expressed his frustration following the 16-3 loss to Miami.

"I'm at a loss for words for what we are offensively," he said. "The best word I can come up with to describe it is just disarray. We have no type of rhythm. And plays just aren't being made. Offensively we just have no rhythm. We don't have a clue. Whatever criticism the offense gets is well-deserved."

And there was plenty of criticism. The Bills failed to score a touchdown in back-to-back games for the first time since 2003, and they had a season-low of 163 yards against the Dolphins.

J.P. Losman played quarterback instead of injured Trent Edwards, and he was unable to generate any type of consistency, though he didn't get much from the game plan as the Bills rushed Marshawn Lynch just 13 times for 31 yards.

"We've got one of the best running backs in the league, and we've got a great backup," said left tackle Jason Peters, referring to Lynch and backup Fred Jackson. "We've got to get him going. That's why we drafted him. He can run the ball and we're not giving him enough carries to get his run game going. I don't understand it."

Evans said as much following Buffalo's 10-3 loss to San Francisco a week earlier, that the Bills needed to commit to the run. He wasn't changing his tune after the Miami game.

"We are what we are and right now we're not very good," he said. "It can't get much worse. It's a lack of a lot of things, really. If you want to look at that Kansas City game (when the Bills scored 54 points three weeks ago) and say that was the peak, then we went from peak to the bottom real quick."

Coach Dick Jauron offered very little in the way of answers, outside of saying the Bills have to get better. He said he was not unhappy with the play calling, and he does not think the players are losing faith in him or his coaching staff.

"I don't feel like I've lost the locker room in any way," Jauron said. "I would say there's a danger of everything. I've always been that way. I've never taken anything for granted from day one until the present. I suspect you could say yes, there's always a danger, the same danger that existed early. Do I think it will happen? No I don't."

Jauron has come under fire for the way the team has collapsed from a 5-1 start to its current 6-7 mark that has their playoff chances teetering on the brink of extinction. He acknowledged the heat.

"We just didn't perform and that reflects on me. That's on my shoulders," Jauron said.

And then when he was asked about chief operating officer Russ Brandon's comment that the team's performance was unacceptable, Jauron said, "It's where we are and we're disappointed about it. You're talking about a couple of things. Do we accept the performance? No, we're very disappointed in it. Is it unacceptable? How do you not accept it if you've done it? So that's where we are we've got to live with it. That's our record and we've got to take it and go on and improve and that's what we're trying to do."
